TMACOG Bicycle User Map - Need User Input

TMACOGTMACOG is developing a bicycle user map for Lucas and Wood Counties and the southern three townships of Monroe County, Michigan. Our goal is to develop a map that will help people plan routes for travel by bicycle. The resulting map will help riders - from novices to very experienced cyclists - choose routes that are aligned with their level of skill. A version of the map will be printed in a travel-friendly size and it will be available online too.

 

Whether you ride every day, or just occasionally, whether your ride to work or school, or for exercise, or fun, we want to hear from you! Help us understand your experiences riding on roadways in the TMACOG region. To provide your comments click this LINK. Begin by selecting “Proceed as Guest” and then follow the prompts to map as many routes as you like!

If you’d prefer to provide your routes and comments on a paper map instead, just drop into any area bicycle shop to get a paper copy. Or call 419.241.9155, ext 119, or email connell@tmacog.org
 to request a copy. Comment period ends May 31.

Court Street Connects - April 22, 2017

We Are Traffic and TMACOG joined forces at Court Street Connects in Bowling Green this past Saturday to educate and solicit input for the TMACOG Bicycle User Map under development.  The event was held in conjunction with Earth Day activities and included an experimental "Cycle-Track" that was temporarily painted on Court Street.  The counter-flow bike lane will remain in place for two weeks while students at BGSU gathers usage data.  If you have a chance, visit Bowling Green and ride the two-way bike lane on Court Street.  You can find more information about the project by clicking here.
